    1. We should be able to go on a nice losing streak starting today with the Celtics. Let’s hope we can make up some games here!

    2. There’s no way Kennedy Meeks goes as late as he’s currently projected, right? At this rate I wouldn’t even be surprised if he’s a late first. I hope the Knicks are all over him if he’s available with one of their second rounders though.

    3. Every single draft I see has Meeks going undrafted or as like #60

      I think he’ll go higher with the UNC run but I doubt he’ll be picked above 45. His game isn’t flashy enough and he’s a senior both of which unjustifiably lower his draft stock

      Would love to spend a pick on him, Thornwell, Mason, or Allen in the 2nd.
